    Default DCS Nights

    Hi all,
    I'm hoping we can go back to making DCS Thursdays a thing again - at least for those that are interested. We're about to get to the unified install (so no more multiple installs of three versions!) this will make flying together a lot easier. What I intend to do in most, if not all, of the training missions that I put together is to include the Su-25T. This is the free aircraft that comes with DCS World itself. It is actually a very capable close support aircraft. Inlcuding this will give everyone the chance to fly along with us. It is not a fully clickable aircraft and it is only of a Flaming Cliffs 3 standard, however this is on a par with IL2 BoX and Cliffs, so not like it is something simple - it still requires some learning and it is a good introduction to DCS.

    The main thing is that people will able to come along with those of us that have adopted the Harrier, and you should be able to keep up and take part in the missions!

    We currently have four Harrier Pilots (that I am aware of)
    • Red
    • MRAM
    • Flashheart added!
    • OD

    If there is anyone else make yourself known!

    I'm currently making missions in both the Georgia and Normandy maps. Anything that I put together in the NTTR map is generally for me to do on my own.

    As an aside I have been including the AJS-37 Viggen in all of the missions too, as I am aware that there are a couple of us that have the Viggen

    Hopefully see some more of you online in DCS soon!

    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    Sounds good - another Harrier pilot checking in!

    It's a damn good job they're in the RAF, otherwise they'd be all out there blowing up banks. (Derek Robinson, 'Piece of Cake')

    Ok, well those that would like to do a little more than WW2, on occasion, can join me on a Thursday night. I only have Monday, Thursday and Sunday to touch my PC so I'm not flush with options. I'm happy to do DCS as WW2, but it seemed you all gave up on that. So, seeing as there are four of us that have the Harrier and we're all keen to learn how to do more with it, I thought I would try to be inclusive and give an option for the others that would like to find out more. I also know that Mikke likes flying the Viggen so I've tried to make sure he can join in too.

    If there is something WW2 planned for a Thursday night then that would take precedence, but there isn't (at the moment). so I didn't see it being a problem. I apologise if it is.

    I'm really not trying to cause problems, sorry,

    OD.

    I also only have time (barely) to fly mondays and thursdays, and I don't have enough interest in BoX to spend my limited time to get into it and CoD don't seem to get the revival I had hoped for with the new version, so my options it pretty much flying alone in DCS or if I'm lucky to fly DCS with someone else. And I rather fly jets with someone then alone. If alone I'll probably fly the Spit the most, but it will be a mix.

    Had fun on monday, thanks for hosting OD!

    Can you include the M2000 and F5? Please.
    I have these two aircraft and like them. Both are capable ground attackers also.

    I generally have the Mirage in, but I can add the F-5 too. I do enjoy both! I just tend to get distracted when there is a long list of planes to choose from! Ha!

    Good effort, What version are you using Tom? Haven’t touched DCS in ages as I found the VR over Normandy very stuttery.

    Love the Harrier at air shows but love prop plane dog fighting, however flying together is always the big draw.

    At the minute...all three, but by the end of January the unified version will be out, so that won't be an issue for much longer. Performance in 2.2 has improved in VR, but I didn't have a problem with it before.

    Lucky you, it was bloody awful over Normandy and this was offline. It was especially annoying because the other maps were better and BOX was silky compared.

    Have they improved the damage graphics yet, it reminds of an 90's game.
